 Pole work

The next step is to get her to catch it in the air. Attach your roprey to your pole instead of a lure, so that you can hold it just off the ground and run the motor. Even while she is still on a creance she can catch it and feed on the ground with it. You can put plenty of food on at this stage. Remember to go for a clean slip. The first thing your raptor should see when the hood comes off is the roprey, and she should instantly start. Out hawking a one second delay could make a big difference in the outcome.

We also made a video where you can see how we use the pole for the first lessons:
